Data validation

Data validation is carried out in three steps corresponding to the main processes of the data processing when compiling the National Accounts:

  1. Thorough data validation is carried in primary statistics. See the relevant documentation of statistics for more information.
  2. Data validation when preparing data for the product balance system. The National Accountants receives and process data on detailed unit-level which makes it possible to go back to the sources.
  3. The final data validation is carried out when reconciling the product balance system into consistency.

Data compilation

The data compilation is described together with "Data validation".


There is no adjustments on data except what is already described under "data validation" and "data compilation".
